mozilla install suse - repost

Hi Everyone,

Not new to the site, but am STILL new to Linux. Trying to install Mozilla 1.7.6 in KDE in SuSe, try to create the default /usr/local/mozilla dir. but will not allow. (Error 624)

Ok, I tried to switch to root by su command got the # and tried to launch the installer again, this is what I got:

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0.0

If I switch back to normal user and issue the same command the installer will open and then again not be able to create the /usr/local/mozilla dir.

After some sleep and another look at dir tree /usr dir exists.

Some replied telling me this...

Before switching to root using "su", you need to do "xhost +localhost" as a normal user (the one who started the gui), then do "su" and proceed with the installation.

This is my reply...Show us the contents of /home/cjae/mozilla using ' ls -la ' command

Please help. Still having problems

cjae@linux:~> xhost +localhost
localhost being added to access control list
cjae@linux:~> su
linux:/home/cjae # cd /home/cjae/mozilla
linux:/home/cjae/mozilla # ./mozilla-installer
bash: ./mozilla-installer: is a directory
linux:/home/cjae/mozilla # cd mozilla-installer
linux:/home/cjae/mozilla/mozilla-installer # ./mozilla-installer

Show us the contents of /home/cjae/mozilla using ' ls -la ' command

Here it is...

Ok try this. Restart the computer or just logout the user. Login as ROOT at gui login or whatever login you have. Do not try to switch to root using su as you probably have something wrong there, because it doesn't let you connect to the X server. Just login as root at the initial login and you should be fine
